The two year renovation project has seen the historic A-listed lighthouse buildings refurbished to form self-catering accommodation together with the creation of a new education centre on behalf of Shetland Amenity Trust.
Care has been taken throughout to restore the original layout and features of the Robert Stevenson designed lighthouse.
Shetland Amenity Trust general manager Jimmy Moncreiff, commented: "We are very proud of what has been achieved with the new facilities at Sumburgh Head. These will significantly enhance the visitor experience and help to attract visitors to Shetland.”
